    ZERO TO THE SHOOTER?

    Animal Abuse?

    This is getting a lot of internet traction lately. When I first watched it I was expecting something a LOT worse than what I saw. I think people are transferring the emotions they have for their family pet onto a working police dog. While a person who has never been around Police K9's may find...
